Homeboy Industries Faces Cuts in Funding

Hosted by

Homeboy Industries employs 8000 young men and women who are former members of gangs all over Los Angeles County.  Created by Jesuit Father Gregory Boyle 20 years ago, Homeboy is now a nondenominational nonprofit that runs a bakery and café as well as solar energy and landscaping projects. It makes money, but not enough to be self-sustaining and now some of its funding sources are drying up, as we hear from Father Boyle.
